My New Ink!

I got tattoo number 8 on June 7th!

Brent Goudie, of Rogue Ink Custom Tattoos came to my house and brought all his gear! How awesome is it that he came to me! Over the last few weeks, Brent and I have traded emails and phone calls, and I sent him some scribbles I had done so he could see what I had in mind, as well as some pictures I Googled so he could get even more of a “feel” for what I had in mind.

For the last year or so, I’ve had a tattoo in mind, ever since I saw my friend Malicious Intent’s tribute to her grandfather.

My dad is a photographer at heart, and over the years has photographed hundreds of weddings and many many other occasions. My mommy darling is an artist at heart. Drawing, painting, poetry…

The tattoo is a tribute to my parents.

All done! Red and bleeding but all done!

Its 9 days later and its healing beautifully! There are a few scabs left, and most of it is milky now, but the detail is fabulous.
